Title : Lord of the Wolfyn
Series : Royal House of Shadows #3
Release date : October 18th, 2011
Publisher : Harlequin
Genre : Paranormal Romance

I received this novel as an ARC, courtesy of Net Galley

The story begins when a Blood sorcerer kills the king and queen of Magical Elden and has plans to kill their four children next in order to get the throne. But never underestimate the love and strength of parents, their mother had enough strength in her to combine her power and send them away to survive and deal with their enemy later.

Reda Weston is a human cop, who’s dealing with her partner’s death. She blames herself for his death, because she froze when they walked into a robbery. Reda always had a way to escape reality and be happy in her dream world, especially fairy tales and her favorite Little Red Riding Hood. She has been looking for that special edition her mother always talked about and now she finally found it. But she never could expect to be drawn into a vortex and wake up in a magic realm.

Dayn is the second son and prince of the Kingdom of Elden. After the brutal attack and murder on his parents, he has been living in the Wolfyn realm. The last thing his father whispered to him in the vortex was to wait for the one woman who would guide him back home. He has been waiting for two decades for her to come his way, now he is ready to go back home and stop the Blood sorcerer and get the vengeance he desperately craves.

Lord of the Wolfyn by Jessica Andersen is the third novel in the Royal House of Shadows Series, which she is co-writing with Gena Showalter, Jill Monroe and Nalini Singh. I already loved Jessica Andersen’s The Final Prophecies Series, so I was curious to see if this novel would capture me too and yeah it did. I love her version of Little Red Riding Hood.

Reda and Dayn both has some issues they need overcome and the only way to deal with that is to work together. But Reda has a hard time with that when she discovers the real identity of Dayn, not him being a royal prince but his curse to change into a Wolfyn, the one creature she fears.

But when the final moment is there for Reda to decide what she really wants, she let her heart speak instead of her mind. Now they have to find a way to the Kingdom of Elden and reclaim Dayn’s home.

I loved this book, it has captured me from the first pages and it held my curiosity till the end. Dayn and Reda are strong characters, okay they have to deal with a lot of baggage from the past, but slowly they manage to overcome that.

You can sense that the four siblings are getting closer and closer to reclaim the Kingdom that is legally theirs. Only one more book left and I cannot wait to see what Nalini Singh has in store for the youngest. I really hope the brothers and sister will find a way to reclaim their heritage and finally be together again. I’m already looking forward to read that.
